Most cats don't need iron supplemented but yes there are iron shots,
Baileys iron was a little low and he did get a couple of shots but the
epogen and prednisolone were in my opinion the main things that helped
him, the doxy I wanted him on as a precaution, he always tested negative
on the hemo test (4 or 5 time), so once his HCT started going up all he
was getting was the pred and epogen. He got nutrived in his food also
but as low as his HCT was getting he needed the epogen to keep him from
crashing and dying.
If your BF found a kitten, as in months old, it probably had Acute renal
failure from getting into something like poison or eating a plant that
was toxic, unless it had faulty kidneys at birth. Acute renal failure
comes on very suddenly, chronic renal failure comes on over time,
progressively. Fred's kidneys have been failing over a 4 or 5 year time
happiness is being owned by cats ...
